Natural Beauty at Liberty Warehouse

Romantic flowers and rustic touches struck a perfect balance at this Brooklyn waterfront wedding.  You might remember bride Jennifer’s natural, dimensional bouquet from this recent bouquet recipe featuring blush La Perla roses, cream dahlias and cascading jasmine vines.

Vows took place under a stunning, squared archway of curly willow branches, adorned with cascading greenery and studded with clusters of roses and hydrangea. As with the bouquet, the look was natural and rustic with lots of dimension and texture.

Mason jars, accented with burlap and navy-blue satin ribbon, held simple clusters of baby’s breath to decorate chairs. Wooden boxes held lush blooms for low reception-table centerpieces.

Ideally located between Central Park and the Hudson River, Mandarin Oriental sets itself apart with breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and exquisite attention to detail.

Stunning bride Carolyn could not have chosen a more fitting venue for her elegant celebration. Classic wedding flowers, in a timeless palette of blush-and-white, were designed to be both traditional and on trend. Ranunculus joined white garden roses and blush Keira roses in a compact, rounded bridal bouquet with fully wrapped stems. Bridesmaids, wearing a striking shade of royal blue, carried snow-white Tibet roses and ranunculus, while the sweet flower girl carried a delicate nosegay of blush roses.

Lauren’s Ethereal Floral Head Wreath

Ethereal Floral Crown Anthony Vasquez 3

Lauren and David’s engagement photoshoot is sweet perfection. You may remember the tutorial and flower crown recipe we shared when this charming bride-to-be asked us to design an ethereal, bohemian-chic floral head piece for her engagement session.

We got to know Lauren’s lovely sense of style while working on designs for her big day next June. For this engagement session, she envisioned blush roses and shared an inspiration image from a gorgeous French wedding. Instead of standard roses, we suggested delicate, light-pink spray roses, and ethereal baby’s breath. Cool-toned, seeded eucalyptus complimented the intricate, ivory petals of tiny wildflowers, including poetically-named astrantia million stars…

Black & White Stripes at Maritime Parc

Maritime Parc Wedding CLY by Matthew

Wedding style is all in the details. For Jennifer and Dan’s romantic day at New Jersey’s Maritime Parc, striking black and white striped ribbons accented lush, white and cream wedding flowers. Crisp stripes against soft florals set this celebration apart. Gorgeous bride Jennifer shared her love story and decor inspiration with us.

These days, love often begins with online dating, but for this couple, business networking turned into a modern meet-cute. “The story of how we met is pretty unique,” Jennifer told us.  “I had just graduated business school and was spending a lot of time online looking for a job. I came across Dan on Linkedin in the ‘People You May Know’ section. We had a few mutual friends in the media world. He saw I looked at his profile and started emailing me. The emails turned into a first date, and the rest is history!”

Well-Read at Windows on the Water


We loved being a part of this charming, book-themed wedding for a New Jersey bride who loves getting lost in a story. Vows were framed by a gorgeous blush-and-cream floral archway. Romantic clusters of blooms included Tibet roses, sweetheart roses and ranunculus, accented with geranium leaves, seeded eucalyptus and olive tree greens.

This natural, whimsical look continued with all the wedding flowers. Eucalyptus berries and passion vines gave the bridal bouquet, composed of spray roses and garden roses, organic texture, while sweet pea and lisianthus added delicacy. A garland of lush greenery and fresh-cut blooms adorned the sweetheart table. 

Framed quotes from great authors – from A.A. Milne to Cormac McCarthy – and table numbers printed on vintage book pages, joined arrangements featuring dahlias, quicksand roses, manzanita branches and moss. Illuminated by rustic lanterns and candlelight, the celebration seemed to take place in a fairy-tale forest.
